Autumn starts to show her colors.....

There is a buzz in the garden that autumn has come...

Our New York Asters (Symphyotrichum novi-belgii) are in glorious bloom. They have taken over a large area and put on a great show to say goodbye to summer and herald in autumn. The bees are enjoying a final summer feast of nectar.

There is such an overflow of flowers that I even put them in a vase to create an instant autumn table on the terrace just outside the living room. 

And our hydrangeas put on a great show over the summer but are not quite done showing off now with pretty rose tints to welcome the fall. 

There are touches of autumn in our front garden too. I love opening the bedroom curtains in the morning as this table display greets me as I start a new day...



  1. Heerlijk Heidi!! Genieten samen met Jos!!

  2. I love those Autumn tints that hydrangeas seem to gather as the season goes on.

  3. Beautiful photos, Heidi. I hope you are doing well...I miss "talking" to you more often. xoxo

  4. Hello Heidi. Your Autumn photos are lovely and I love the table display. My favourite time of the year. I've been out of the blogging link for some time now but hoping to get motivated now October's here. Thank you for your comment on my last blog (a month ago) and look forward to keeping in touch. Hugs

  5. Such lovely colours and, portrayed with your usual flair, Heidi. You always capture the season. xx

  6. Nu weet ik zeker dat die paarse bloemetjes in m'n voortuin geen onkruid zijn, maar new Yorkse asters. Moest ook wel, want ze zijn veel te leuk.!

  7. Your flowers look lovely. Such beauty! - Amy :)
